The BEAst_in_i: Crown the King

Mostly good, had what seemed like a setback when I introduced the bag throws, but it cleared up pretty quick. Feeling pretty strong and explosive right now over all though.

Lowered the pick height, since I have been training with a high pick to focus on the walking portion. Since the word on the street is that they might have a set height for the pick on the conan’s wheel. Next week will be slightly lower than this week, just to be sure I have some training in on longer ROM and be as ready as possible for a curveball.

Hips were kind of burned out at this point and I couldn’t fully stabilize in the shouldered position. So technically no competition standard reps were done.

Instead of being able to focus on training to score on the stone to shoulder event, I have had to focus on rebuilding specific hip stability/strength to just attempt the event. I had hoped the rebuild/rehab work I did would have been good enough for this but it was not. Might be able to tough out one 1 rep on the day since I have been able to do this weight shoulder before.

Feeling good about the Conan’s Wheel and Hercule’s Hold. Not sure about the bag throw but I think it should be good enough. 99% chance of zeroing the overhead, bar a miracle peak effect.

Hitting a short general training phase til year end when Winter Siege is over. Then start prep for Nebraska’s Strongest Man. Planning on competing as a Lightweight instead of Middleweight.

Upperback was exhausted. Pretty sure it was the lifting at work, heavy awkward shit not on pallets which I had to move around and sort. Plus already knee deep in fatigue. 2 prep sessions to go.

Prep is finalized. Glad it’s over, something about this prep was particularly not great from a mental standpoint. Looking forward to the deload and the ensuing mood improvement that comes from it. Regardless of what happens next Saturday, I should be in a better place to move forward.

Winter Siege VI

Did not go well. Zero’d Stones, Bag Throw and Overhead. Severely underperformed on Conan’s Wheel. Only event I didn’t shit the bed on was Hercule’s Hold. Trying not to dwell on it too much, so not doing a full write up for it.
